journal

The Scrapbook Journal project commenced in high school, an assignment for an art class. Taken by it, I continued work on it for a couple of years, using it as a mode of private expression of life events and feelings that came along with them in young adulthood. Included in this portfolio are among my favorite pages, which document experiences from around 2002-2005, ages sixteen to nineteen. These are all within a book on paper, utilizing graphite, photographs, watercolor, ink, and other elements. Read more about each one in its description by clicking on it.

Inspired by a happy accident involving the table I regularly paint on and epoxy resin overflow, the combined effects of acrylic painting, a variety of other creative techniques, and epoxy resin finish, yield exquisitely vivid colors for an inevitably wide-eyed viewer experience. These are wall hang ready size 8 moderate concave decks that can also be ridden with standard sized trucks.  Read more about each one in its description by clicking on it.

ketchup

The Ketchup series is the result of creative constipation. After holding in my love of creative expression in the way of fine arts, the ketchup series was my way of catching up real fast - an explosion, a purge, of all that’s held me back; simultaneously celebrating what has brought me joy, growth, and love. The line between suffering and sickness, love and expansion, is a blur - as all of it has chiseled me into the current state of my existence. Mainly acrylic is used on canvas, as well as cardboard, scrap metal, photographs, tissue paper, buttons, roofing shingles, and more. Read more about each one in its description by clicking on it.
